Fill the bottom of your terrarium. We decided to use rocks and stones for a classy look. Do you have sand sitting around from your last vacation? Fill the bottom of your terrarium with sand! You can use pebbles, stones, decorative rocks or stones, the possibilities are endless.


Start with your biggest succulent or air plant. Since this piece takes up the most space, we will place the smaller succulents around the biggest plant. This is the focal point of the terrarium.
